I am a recent graduate of Loyola University Chicago! I have experience dog-sitting, even including a professor's dog. I also volunteered for a summer at the humane society. I have a huge heart for dogs, especially for their happiness and well-being, and would be grateful for the opportunity to walk your dog!
Dogs delight me. They always have. I love them more each day. I have been a pet care professional for 23 years. I share my life with Gaby, Charlotte and 3 cats. I have experience with almost every dog breed, age and temperament. I look forward to meeting your fur baby.
My goal is to make sure your furry member of the family has the best experience possible. I have the most experience with lazy cocker spaniels and very high energy sight hounds. I can confidently promise you that your pets safety is my top priority while giving them a walk that is sure to tucker them out!

“Wet noses, Wiggly tails and Wag walking, my fave!”
Hi my name is Laura! I grew up with the two most wonderful dogs who were always there for me and showed me what it was like to care for a furry best friend. Animals are important to me and I am excited to have a job where they are the priority! Wag is awesome to be apart of because I get to be that person for your furbaby to get them outside during the day while you’re away. Always know they are in good hands with me and that they will be getting lots of attention, treats, and a great walk! :)
